In collaboration with Syracuse University, SCSD Parent University recently recognized the 2016-17 Youth Unsung Heroes. School staff nominated students who they think embody the character traits of Martin Luther King, Jr. including leadership, kindness and those who advocate for change in their school buildings, the community at large and beyond.
 
This year’s winners range from fourth to tenth graders and represent nine SCSD schools. These students serve on the Student Council and in Seeds of Peace and the Community-Wide Dialogue. They volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters or at church, they assist in clothing drives, ring the Salvation Army bell, prepare meals for the less fortunate and have even created their own charities. Congratulations to all of these Unsung Heroes for all they are doing to help lead themselves and their peers as they Go for the Gold!
